Everything was thawing yesterday, so we didn't get to walk the Eagle Pass Trail like normal. Mom thought it would be "too muddy". Mags and I were a bit disappointed, as there is really no such thing as "too muddy" as far as we're concerned. The good news, though, is that there was still a bit of snow on either side of the road!
|"We should walk over there in the snow!"|
"Excellent idea, Cam!"
We walked over to the right-hand side so we could step in the snow. And to look out over Willow Lake. Mostly for the snow, if I'm to be honest.
|"Oooooh, snow! How serene!!!"|
|"Look across the lake! Birdie!"|
Check out what Maggie spotted!
Maggie is really becoming quite the birder!
|"Good job, Mags!"|
We went around the locked gate, then spotted some tiny birds - like these:
Dad held our leashes while Mom took tiny bird shots. She also took this one of us with the good camera:
|Maggie and me. ❤ I'll always have her six!|
I like that one.
After our walk, we drove around the park a bit, stopping here and there. We saw our friend Beth, and Mom walked down to where she was. She could tell Beth had something special in a tree and was taking lots of photos of it; Mom didn't want to scare whatever it was away! When she got there, she discovered that Beth had a pet Chickadee (not really ... but it seemed that way!) who was posing for her! He let Mom take some snaps, too. Here are her faves:
|Black Capped Chickadee, doing pull-ups|
|Singing a lovely song|
|Posing on a branch|
Mom had never had a Chickadee let her get that "up close and personal" before, so she was thrilled! And she was quite happy to run into Beth. It's always nice to see friends!
Before we knew it, it was time to head home.
|"Thanks for coming with us, everyone!"|
I had a wonderful time at Tuttle, as you can see in the photo above! I hope you enjoyed coming with us, via Mom's photos. Maggie? Did you have fun, too?!?
|"Oh, yeah, Cam! Ohhhh, YEAH!!!"|
Have a very serene Sunday, everyone!
